"'Infinity Standing Up' tells the messy, rowdy, off-again/on-again story of a passionate love affair in the form of 40 sonnets."
from the Foreword, "Infinity Standing Up"
- Mare Davis, Ph. D.
"A stunning collection of unique and eclectic observations of modern love which Im sure Shakespeare himself would be pleased to see is holding a mirror up to life. If Wes Anderson and Miranda July had a Queer love-child, theyd write like this."
